Dogs at our holiday parks in France

At nearly all FranceComfort parks dogs are welcome and there are houses specific for dogs. There are also, obviously, houses where dogs aren’t allowed due to other guests possibly being allergic. At some parks there are just a few houses where a dog is allowed, in these parks taking your dog with you is something you need to request. It is therefore important in all cases that you indicate when you make your reservation that you want to take your dog with you. We can then ensure that you’ll stay in a beautiful holiday home that is suitable for dogs.

And, will you be taking your dog with you to France?

Everyone makes their own decisions on whether or not their dog should come along. It should be fun for both the owner and the dog. Not all dogs are suitable to take with you. Temperamental, physical limitations or illness can be a reason to leave your dog at home. If you are in doubt, it may be a good idea to give it a try by taking your dog away for a weekend first. You will then immediately know whether your dog can handle longer car trips. It is also of course necessary to get your dog the appropriate vaccinations.

The dog and the French climate

You know your dog best and you’ll know if he can handle the heat well. Hot days can be very tiring for a dog. If that’s the case, you won’t do your dog any favors by taking him to warm regions. If your dog can handle heat, remember to take water with you on long walks. By the way, in certain parts of France when walking through nature, also pay attention to vipers. Also, don’t forget to take tick pliers.

Don't forget

  • Water when going on a walk
  • Watch out for vipers
  • Take tick pliers with you

Check your dog's insurance

Read the conditions of the dogs following two insurances: the travel insurance and the third-party insurance. People’s medical expenses abroad are often covered by the travel insurance, a dog’s expenses are often not. In addition, it is also nice to know that if your dog damages something  in the holiday home, it is covered by your insurance.

Taking your dog to a restaurant

In France, certain rules are imposed by the government. For example, there is a good chance that dogs are not allowed in restaurants with open kitchens. In addition, during the holidays dinner often takes a lot longer in France than at home. It can be quite a long time for a dog to wait, thus he could become restless.
